So the millermatic 350p was turning on and off randomly at the new shop I'm at, everyone in the shop said.." oh, it just does that. We don't know why". So did a little trouble shooting and the cable is missing the ground. That's not cool with me, so a quick 15 minutes and 20$ and problem solved! Don't let others dictate what's good for you, be a wolf not a sheep#notcool#wolf#wolfpack#weld#weldnation#weldnationarmy#weldporn#weldmafia#safetyfirst

So this is my second attempt ever at 1" stainless pipe, tig root and cap.... first time was definitely lack lustre but with help from a true instagram brother @dabswellington with my sloppy settings,she came out not to bad#alwaystryagain#alwaystrying#weldlife#welding#weldnationarmy#instabrother#instabrothers#nofilter#lovethisshit#pointonepercenter#bluecollar#bluecollorbrotherhood#GTAW#tiglife#stainlesstig#stainlesssteel#fabrication#stainlessfabrication#canadianmade#canadaproud

This pipe was out by literally 2mm, all the guys in the shop said "leave it , its close enough ".... sorry boys can't leave it. That's what's wrong with 98% of people out there, they accept "good enough ". I can't take pride in my work if it's only "good enough ", and neither should you. Don't be afraid of being a leader, there's too many sheep out there... Be a WOLF!!! #wolf#wolfpack#bealeader#riseandgrind#pointonepercenter#welding#weldlife#weldporn#weldnationarmy#weldnation#aluminumwelding#GTAW#fabricationlife#fabfriday#aluminumfabrication#bluecollar#bluecollarbrotherhood#weldevils#wearedevils#lovethisshit#lovewhatyoudo#burntgloves#canadianmade#islandstyle#islandsfinest#780#250

Freezer plates w/ custom returns.. proud to say I've built everything in this pic, from machining the blocks on the end of the fittings , bending and fitting all the pipe and the plates themselves....#weldlife#welding#weldporn#weldpornarmy#weldnation#weldnationarmy#fabrication#fabricationlife#aluminumwelding#aluminumfabrication#GTAW#miggagang#GMAW#pointonepercenter#welddevils#wearedevils#bluecollar#bluecollarbrotherhood#lovethisshit

The difference between being a good welder/fabricator and a shit one is the ability to recognize your mistakes and fix them properly. For all those that can fix what they f@&k up....#respect!!#welding#weldporn#weldpornarmy#weldnation#pointonepercenter#weldlife#weldwednesday#fabrication#fabricationlife#welddevils#wearedevils#bluecollar#bluecollarbrotherhood#island#islandlife#islandsfinest#canadienmade#870#250
